Last night a lightning storm ripped through NH and I was all "haha, im not unplugging my computer this time", figuring my 5 year old expensive belkin surge protector would save it. Because really, i'll left my comp plugged in before and never had a problem. As fate would have it though a bolt hit nearby and everything in the house went out. I noticed there was something funky sounding from my computer so I opened it up and saw that my floppy drive was fried. I think nature just made me drop the floppy permanently.
